Scotland take the title in style
ICC Media Release
Scotland ended the tournament with yet another outstanding performance. They played Vanuatu at the Coleraine Cricket Club. Scotland posted 222 for eight in its 50 overs and the total seemed to be just about par thanks to yet another disciplined Vanuatu bowling performance. Vanuatu in reply was bowled out for 92 in 38.5 overs. The key wicket-taker for Scotland was Kyle Smith who picked up five for 17.
Scotland won by 130 runs and also took home the tournament title for winning eight of the nine games in the tournament.
Smith’s spell helped him fetch the Man of the Match award. Smith was thrilled to be part of the winning team: “It is an amazing feeling to be part of the winning squad. The pitch was a bit two-paced. So all I had to do was to bowl in the right areas. I am glad the tournament went off well for us as we had prepared well for it.”
